Councillors from Truro and the surrounding area are being brought together to develop a common vision for any future building developments.

City, parish and unitary authority members, plus a community group, are to work on what was being called the Interim Plan, Cornwall Council said.

The plan is to include important information for councillors to consider in dealing with planning applications.

A first draft was expected in early 2011, the council said.

The plan is to cover Truro and the parishes of St Allen, Chacewater, Kea, Kenwyn and St Clements.

Park-and-ride scheme

It would build on and take into account information compiled for the previous Truro and Threemilestone Area Action Plan, the council said.

The Truro and Roseland Community Network will also be involved.

Cornwall councillor Rob Nolan, who is leading the plan, said it was needed because a number of major planning applications were expected and decisions needed to be as well-informed as possible.

Applications expected include those for a park-and-ride scheme in the east of the city, as well as a residential development.

Several applications are also expected for housing and retail developments in the west of Truro.
